Expanding the Horizon: Black Hole Accretion Across the Mass Spectrum
Contact information:
Fellowship status:
Starting year: 2002
AAPF alumnus
Fellowship institution: Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
Current (or last known) position: Assistant Professor, University of Michigan
Research Interests:

My research interests include accretion onto black holes, how accretion flows can be used as a tool to study black hole parameters (e.g., spin), and the origin of relativistic jets. I am leading an international multi-wavelength collaboration which observes Galactic black holes in outburst, and a team which is studying the possibility of intermediate-mass black holes in the most luminous ULX sources in nearby normal galaxies.

Education and Outreach Interests:

I am primarily interested in impacting high school audiences in my education and public outreach initiatives. Presently, I am working with Weymough (MA) High School to develop workshops to help teachers implement astronomy in the science classroom, and outreach talks to communicate modern astrophysics to the larger community.
